  • Managing the Impacts of Climate Change on Freight Transportation Operations and Infrastructure – A Leadership Summit | Vanderbilt Center for Transportation and Operational Resiliency (VECTOR) | Vanderbilt University
    security and efficiency One of these issues the impact of climate change on freight transportation operations and infrastructure has been selected as the topic for a CIFTS leadership summit to be held at Vanderbilt University The purpose of this project is to organize and implement this leadership summit Summit goals are to Involve industry government academic and community leaders in recognizing how climate change influences freight transportation Establish priorities on short term and long term impacts of climate change that warrant strategic freight transportation focus Develop freight transportation strategies for addressing priority climate change considerations Identify actions that should be undertaken as soon as possible to initiate these strategies Provide a forum for networking and creating synergies among key stakeholders The summit will be structured as an invitation only event involving the participation of 40 50 key stakeholders representing all aspects of the freight transportation industry operating in the Southeast Summit attendees will convene in plenary and breakout sessions such that each attendee actively participates in reaching consensus on the scope of the problem issues requiring priority attention strategy identification and development of an action plan Update This summit was held June 2nd and 3rd 2011 at Vanderbilt University Click here for the post summit press release Back Home Current Research Managing the Impacts of Climate Change on Freight Transportation Operations and Infrastructure A Leadership Summit Enterprise Risk Management Methods Enhancement and Mitigation Strategy Development Regional Traffic and Safety Information Dissemination Phase III Mining AIS Data for Improved Vessel Trip Analysis Capabilities Development of an Enterprise Risk Management ERM Evaluation Toolbox Impact Estimation of the Effects of Climate Change on Freight Transportation Infrastructure Development of a Decision Support Tool for Bridge Infrastructure Adaptation in Response to Climate Induced Flood Risk Completed Research Projects Recent News Hiba Baroud presented a poster

  • Mining AIS Data for Improved Vessel Trip Analysis Capabilities | Vanderbilt Center for Transportation and Operational Resiliency (VECTOR) | Vanderbilt University
    sites Vanderbilt University recently completed a 6 month study of inland AIS data at an Ingram Barge Company facility in Paducah Kentucky in 2011 Despite the complex river port configuration Paducah is located at the meeting of the Cumberland Ohio and Tennessee Rivers researchers successfully deployed models to generate useful trip data as well as detect vessel operations such as fleeting docking and lockages The Ingram Barge Company is in the process of installing another AIS antenna at Reserve LA located between Baton Rouge and New Orleans LA This location is expected to produce more data as AIS carriage is required on this section of the Mississippi River and additional challenges owing to the mix of inland and deepwater vessel traffic The Paducah antenna remains operational These data assets will provide the necessary raw material for the desired outcomes listed below Desired Outcomes This project is expected to produce a methodology to process large amounts of AIS data in near real time from geographically diverse AIS antenna locations The value of such archived AIS data will be demonstrated using a case study approach that will include a range of operational performance measures of the fleet and port infrastructure facilities Several analytical approaches will be followed Correlation of AIS trip data with significant and extreme weather events high low water conditions reduced visibility high winds etc Use of additional data sources e g OMNI XML web service to generate additional information and trip data beyond AIS coverage areas Vessel type and size distribution in AIS antenna coverage areas Compilation and aggregation of vessel traffic figures in key areas to document needs for infrastructure investment Statistical analysis of vessel speeds through AIS antenna coverage areas Automated detection of vessel arrivals and departures at dock and terminal facilities along with terminal dwell times Automated detection of vessel stop events e g lightering queuing fleeting areas etc within harbor facilities Relation of vessel stop events to navigation points of interest VU will lead the inland rivers component The 2011 Paducah AIS analysis work was conducted on a 6 month archive For this reason VU will focus much of this research on the transition from historical data analysis to efficient data storage visualization and real time data processing The following is a comprehensive list of tasks to be performed during the research Development of a normalized relational database design a normalized design will be generated to efficiently store raw AIS messages This design will be converted to a data warehouse during the project to efficiently archive the raw data and enable swift queries of the large data repository The database platform will either be Oracle 11g or Microsoft SQL Server 2012 2 months Develop code to process data as received from the remote AIS servers and add data to the database 4 months Relate real time AIS data to U S Coast Guard static vessel data the AIS vessel data collected in Paducah and Reserve will be joined to the USCG vessel database Static particulars

  • Regional Traffic and Safety Information Dissemination: Phase III | Vanderbilt Center for Transportation and Operational Resiliency (VECTOR) | Vanderbilt University
    centers TOCs in disseminating traffic and safety information from TDOT SmartWay Vanderbilt successfully developed a template website that uses TDOT s GeoRSS feeds This template includes a map of incidents filterable statewide road condition information real time camera images and dynamic message signs a fully functional companion mobile website and performance measurement for analyzing visitor content preferences Vanderbilt also performed a significant amount of research into considering alternate means of interfacing local TOCs with TSIS Phase II ended September 15 2011 and the template has been successfully installed on the City of Franklin website Phase III phase I feasibility study phase II template development will include deployment of the website template to corridor cities such as Cookeville and Jackson and cities with TOCs Brentwood Franklin Murfreesboro Clarksville Vanderbilt will assist with interfacing TOCs with TSIS to increase TDOT SmartWay s coverage by incorporating state highway observations not visible with TDOT ITS infrastructure As not all information reported by the local TOCs will be of interest to TDOT Vanderbilt will design and implement a simple reporting system to be hosted on a Vanderbilt server for TOCs to report information about local road conditions e g non interstate and non state route to their constituents This project should lead to increased communication and ITS coordination between local agencies and TDOT This research should lead to greater use of syndicated information and increased communication between local agencies and TDOT and serve as a working prototype for other states and local transportation agencies to emulate Dr James Dobbins is the principal investigator of this project and funding support is provided by the Tennessee Department of Transportation Back Home Current Research Managing the Impacts of Climate Change on Freight Transportation Operations and Infrastructure A Leadership Summit Enterprise Risk Management Methods Enhancement and Mitigation Strategy Development
